Transforms and Data Compression Handbook presents issues that are fundamental to communications, image processing, image and data storage, and the medical field. By illustrating the link between the transformation of data and efficient compression, using the basic theory of transforms and real compression applications, the editors create a much-needed handbook for a wide range of engineers and students.

Using data compression as a common theme to unify the chapters into a single account, computer engineers from Europe and North America explore different discrete transforms and their ever-expanding applications in the general area of signal processing. They cover the Karhunen-Love, the discrete Fourier, comparametric, discrete cosine and sine, and lapped transforms and wavelet-based image and fractal-based image and video compression and the compression of wavelet transform coefficients. The material should interest researchers and engineers in any field that requires data compression.
